Hello,

I have a IPhone 5 Sprint used with my GSM card in Europe. Everything works fine - calling/MMS/data/recieve SMS - but I cannot send SMS.

I've tried restoring a bunch of times, tried to set the SMS Service Center using the **5005*-thing, turn off dial assist, data, pretty much every thing - but no luck.

Anyone has any idea what causes this?

Got my Sprint iPhone 5 today and I plan to going to Europe next year with it, so i called them and they said its sim slot is locked but they will unlock it for me next year. I asked if I got next month will they unlock it and they said yes since you have been a spring customer more than 3 months. I know that doesn't help but I figured I share. Sorry hopefully u guys get it working soon.

but the thing is that Apple has sold Sprint I phone 5 with full price as fully usable with local SIM overseas, if this SMS problem is generated because of the locked slim slot then Apple shouldn't sell for the full price the sprint I phone to people who specified that they are non-US resident and expect to use it in their country.
How can we fix the problem if the solution is coming from sprint with overseas people who doesn't have any account ? :mad:

here is the answer of sprint >
*If your able to use all other services on your Sprint iPhone 5 with an international SIM except sending SMS, then your iPhone is not locked by Sprint. For those on the forum you posted, my first question would be why purchase the CDMA version io the iPhone 5 to use solely in GSM markets? Additionally, there are only a few posts in that forum indicating this problem may be isolated to a small percentage of people. Have you backed up your iPhone 5, erased all content and settings, and restored? Ruling out any software corruption from manufacturing? *

*All provisioning elements for Sprint devices comes from our billing system. If you do not have an account with Sprint, we would have no way of sending the unlock command to your device. And as I stated before, if everything else is working, we would say it's already unlocked or rather never was locked by Sprint. *

Oneprouddaddy: If the device were locked, no services at all would work on te device. Moreover, paying "full price" means "no contract" - i.e. you didn't receive the subsidy that motivates the lock - so you're free to use everywhere.

Reading all posts in different forums and even at Apple forums, that is seeming to be something related to the way the iPhone's A1429 model works with the GSM SMS service centres... :-(

Micmac.vietnam
Sep 30, 2012, 10:55 PM
I am not sure about that, Verizon is using the same A1429 model and there is no problem for overseas users to send SMS with it so it means that the hardware is fine and able to send SMS ( which makes sense, do you imagine Apple makes a model of iPhone 5 with no SMS sending option ??? )
... I believe that the problem is coming more from the specific sprint firmware ... US carriers are messing with their so complicated different lock/unlocked policies and Apple made the mistake to sell full price the sprint model if there is such a restriction ( no SMS sending on iPhone 5 A1429 with GSM network ???... what a bad joke ! )
... the good news is that if it's a problem from the iPhone model itself then Sprint will have to face the problem with their client and their international unlocked option, and they will have to find a solution in coordination with Apple

Micmac: do you know Verizon iPhone 5 users using GSM chips with no SMS issues? I think there is no difference between Verizon and Sprint regarding iPhone 5 specs...

----------

I mean - if we're experiencing this issue with SMS with the Sprint version, it would be logical Verizon iPhone 5 users having the same issue as well...

i was under the assumption that if you bought the sprint iphone 5 with no contract full price it was still locked?

Norway. As a side note a friend of mine who also bought the phone in the US has the exact same problem.

I've been in contact with Apple and the most recent advice I got was to try another sim-card. I've tried with three genuine nanoSIMs (whereas two of them are different carriers) but still no luck. I've forwarded this to the contact-person at Apple and atm waiting for a response. (They were talking about taking the device in for a check earlier, allthough as this seem to affect all Verizon/Sprint-phones sold I don't see a reason why they would need to check a single device.)

Im also leaning/guessing that this has something to do with the (custom?) modem firmware.

Keeping you guys posted on any further updates.

Hi Marloz,

I have a friend using the Verizon device in Brazil and works fine. So, the problem looks only with the Sprint devices.

That's what I heard also.
The Sprint iphone 5 phones not the verizon version.

WildstarBR
Oct 4, 2012, 12:55 AM
Hmmm... Seems Sprint devices are locked on GSM. My guess now is what we've been experiencing is a defective lock, not a defective unlock - let me explain: seems Sprint wanted to lock its device - but seems the lock has a glitch that leave everything free to be used but the SMS. Verizon already declared its device is unlocked - but no word from Sprint...

That's what I heard also.
The Sprint iphone 5 phones not the verizon version.

Oct 4, 2012, 06:30 AM
WildstarBR, thats sounds illogical - from both what the Apple-expert told me while selling it, and how a lock normally works. Ie. you won't be able to activate it, not block you from sending SMS.

What are your sources here?

Oct 4, 2012, 12:57 PM
Hi all, I agree with this claim with you. Same thing happened to me at all, acquired an iPhone 5 in an Apple store under the sprint company at the price of free. When you get everything worked perfect excepeto Argentina sending SMS. Try all possible methods calling my local telephone operator, I contacted Sprint via Skype and call Apple but none gave me a solution, just tell me that I can help and I cut the phone. We're in big trouble, or sprint apple should do something! I propose that we join together to travez a facebook group so we can discuss and talk better to find some way to take! Greetings.

Marloz, check your locked statue online with your IMEI you will see the device is checked as "locked", it makes sense with what Sprint has announced and when you tell to Sprint that you can use their device with your gsm sim they don't understand at all what's going on, it wasn't supposed to be like that. The problem comes from Apple

I had the same problem but was able to find a temporary workaround until Apple/Sprint releases some kind of fix. It's not perfect, but it gets me by for now. worked for me, but I don't know if it'll work for every locale:

I am outside the US and trying to use a GSM SIM card in a Sprint iPhone5 but could not send SMS messages (only receive)

Try this:

1. Go to Settings / Messages

2. Make sure "Show Subject Field" is on

3. Try sending a message but type your message in the subject heading instead of the main box. The key is that the subject line has to have something in it, even a " " blank space will do

I tried sending it this way to other iphones and smart phones and both the subject and body of the SMS would go through, but to older cell phones only the subject heading goes through, and only the first 39 characters.

Hopefully Apple/Sprint will come up with an actual fix, but I'm hoping this is of help to some people out there

Seems the problem concerns also Sprint clients with their iPhone confirmed unlocked by Sprint, no SMS sending for them too outside US !... Apple and Sprint keep quiet since 2 weeks now, no solution , no information on what's going on ... This is the way they take care about their client who made their successful iPhone 5 launch !

This is what I don't get! Why bothered getting a CDMA iphone when you can always get an att at full price unlocked out of the box?

Have you tried other carriers such as mobifone, vinaphone, or even beeline?

Hi Micmac.vietnam... you are correct! This is not only a problem of who bought the Sprint iPhone 5 to be used as GSM phone outside USA. Sprint customers will have the same problem. Why? Simple Sprint in USA use CDMA, but when a Sprint customer is out of the USA, their phones will use GSM, and here is the problem. Even if the iPhone is "locked" and under Sprint contract, the iPhone 5 will not send SMS also. So, this is why I always said the problem is not with any kind of "lock", but a problem or with the Phone firmware, or iOS, etc,... Again, the Sprint and the Verizon phones are absolutely the same!!!

Because the ATT wont work on existing and planned European LTE bands. The llogical iPhone 5 worldphones are the Sprint and Verizon models.

Not only can I confirm the outgoing texting issue, but i can confirm that Advanced device suppor tios sauying they have zero complaints and this is not a "known" issue. Apple says this is a Sprint provisioning firmware issue. I suggest everyone who cares call Sprint support, take tthe time and be firm to to push yourself up to Advanced Device support, report it, and get a trouble ticket number. Anything lower than Adviance device will NOT result in any action. If 25 people call even second or third teir support and report it they wont even enter it in their databasloed as reported issue. Those lower mid teir support only look for solutions to recorded known issues, they dont record new ones.

This will never get sovled, or even serious atention, unless people push it to top tier (ADS)

I was talking to mic.vietnam! You know why? Not everyone lives in europe where the CDMA LTE bands could be use in UK or Germany :rolleyes: yea 2 countries make it europe!

Anyways, he is in Vietnam, and there is no such thing as LTE, and not in this decade for sure too. So it doesnt matter which LTE iphone 5 band you get. This is why I just went ahead and got me an ATT gsm version.

I work here in nam 3 months out of a year, and I know how GSM phones are use here.

You make no sense. there is no such thing as "CDMA LTE Bands." LTE is LTE.
The bands and fre1uency of LTE outside the US is and/or planned to be the same one on the sprint and verizon CDMA/GSM/LTE phone, and NOT the aTT GSM only model.

And the examples I gave were part of Europe --refelcting the pans for ALL of Europe.

Lasty why dont you look at plans outside of Europe, including in E and SE Asia, and see what LTE frequencies, you are in for a suprise.

The verizon CMDMA/GSM/LTE phone works out of the box in Vietnam, the ATT does not.

Ok. And? Vietnam does not have LTE and will not have it until someone invest into it which it is not happening in this decade!

Ps: i know LTE is LTE but sprint/verizon use different bands which are use in UK and Germany amirite? That's what i meant as CDMA iphone versions :rolleyes: im currently using my iphone 5 att factory unlocked out of the box without having sms issue! So which one is working out of the box! Lmao

You have it backwards. Sprint verizon models are using the LTE bands in use and planned for all of Europe. The Sprint Verizon model is the hardware and band/frequency set being sold in Europe. The ATT is using bands that wont be used there.

Fine, you bought the LEAST capable device, the ATT which is specific to the US market..

The one savvy buyers get unlocked out of the box and working in the most regions worldwide is the Verizon one.

You want to give advice contrary to what those of us who know will give, fine, but don't expect not be corrected.

By the way look at the LTE deployment in So. Asia, the Philippines, Indonesia etc. You are recommending the worst model for that area.

:eek: really :confused: anyways yes att factory unlocked is the same model as a normal factory unlocked iphone out of the box! So I don't why you are trying to says the opposite! Philippines, indonesia have money to maybe later on have LTE, and for the love of god read what I said! Vietnam is a damn third world country that will not get LTE anytime soon aka this decade! How I know? Well I mothersucking work here for the last 3 years now! :rolleyes:

This is why I'm recommending the best for Vietnam which is the att version since the iphone 2G thru the 4S!

People here dont care about the CDMA version even tho it is unlocked out of the box and has the right LTE band for the so call asia LTE band. They know LTE is hot happening anytime soon.

The best version for Vietnam woudl be the Verizon version. That is the current worldphone

You seem confused as to the versions. The verizon has what the ATT version has plus additional bands

In east asia you will want the Verizon version.

Ok, so here's the deal. Turns out I just spoke to someone high at Apple. THis person took some time to explain to me that the reason these devices are having this problem with SMS is because Sprint decided to allow limited functionality of the device when used on GSM Networks while the device is still under contract.

He went on to explain that these devices are meant to be used on Sprint's CDMA network, not any other network. He said that provisioning files that are given to your phone at the moment of activation come straight from Sprint's billing system and that phones that were subsidized by Sprint will not fully work on different networks even if they are unlocked.

They fixed one of my phones that wasn't sending SMS properly by changing something on the phone's profile but they said they couldn't fix my wife's because I needed to provide proof of purchase showing I paid full price at an Authorized Apple Reseller. So go figure... this is intentionally done by our greedy Telcos... I don't know what to do now.

Hope this helps...

Sprint iPhone 5: Unable to send SMS when outside the United States

Symptoms
In some situations when using an unlocked Sprint iPhone 5 outside the United States with a non-Sprint SIM card, you may be unable to send SMS.

Resolution
If you are traveling internationally with an unlocked iPhone, you may be unable to send SMS if you either:

- Perform an Erase all Content and Settings or
- Restore your iPhone

Follow these steps to resolve the issue:

1 .Connect your iPhone to a Wi-Fi network.
2. Remove the non-Sprint SIM card from the device and insert the Sprint SIM card that came with your iPhone*.
3. Wait until "iPhone is activated" is displayed on the screen.
4. Reinsert the non-Sprint SIM card.
You should now be able to send SMS. If you still cannot send SMS after performing the above steps, contact Apple for additional support.

I had the same problem with locked Sprint Iphone 5. Im using R-SIM7 for unlock and couldn't activate my phone, sms, 3G, imessages and facetime wasn't working(Waiting for activation). Long story short, I managed to fix:



1. To fix this you need to jailbreak with evasi0n and download iFile from cydia(or you can just use ifunbox).



2.Go to (CarrierLab.bundle or 00101 folder) /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/00101/carrier.plist

-back up the file carrier.plist (just in case)



Go to the following line and add +011 so it looks like +011447786205094

< key >PhoneNumberRegistrationGatewayAddress< string >+011447786205094< /string >

SAVE



3.Now go to /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/Unknown.bundles/carrier.plist



ADD -> "+011" To all the 10 numbers you see.

< key >PhoneNumberRegistrationGatewayAddress< /key >< string >+011447537410207< /string >

SAVE



4.Now go to /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/*carrier that your phone is locked to*/carrier.plist

Find SMS perfix under <key>international</key> and delete "011" value so it looks like <string></string>

SAVE



5. To fix 3G go to /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/Unknown.bundles/carrier.plist find <key>SIMs</key><array> and copy all those "<string>xxxxx</string>" number from there and now go to /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/*carrier that your phone is locked to*/carrier.plist4. and find this line <key>intldataroamingallowed<key> <array> *paste here* </array>





SAVE then reboot.



If 3G still not working change to correct APN using unlockit.co.nz



Hope this helps anyone having the same issues.

How can one be sure it will work (or just been ripped off....)?

Is this still an issue?

Sprint and Verizon iPhone 5's on GSM networks with a SIM card.

Verizon I hear is unlocked GSM SIM by default. Is Sprint as well?

And are these SMS issues still a problem?

And are these SMS issues still a problem?Verizon is factory unlocked, Sprint can be unlocked but it takes some doing and it's not always done even then.

Got my Sprint iPhone 5 today and I plan to going to Europe next year with it, so i called them and they said its sim slot is locked but they will unlock it for me next year. I asked if I got next month will they unlock it and they said yes since you have been a spring customer more than 3 months. I know that doesn't help but I figured I share. Sorry hopefully u guys get it working soon.


Im in the same boat, I thought you could help me out in this :/

I bought this phone from an online market (ebay type) and realised it was locked with Sprint.

I am in Pakistan now, although I used to be in US back in 2013! ..
Anyway, I thought maybe you could give sprint a call for me and request to unlock this phone for the use outside the US only?
That'll be so kind of you sir.
